July 4th weekend marks the beginning of beach season. You read about people living inland (read, Riverside) waking up at 4am just so that they can get to the beach at 5:30AM to get a prime parking spot at the beach. Crazy if you ask me. Fortunately, or unfortunately, J’s not a huge beach person (said something about sand in shorts and discomfort) so we’ve spared ourselves from joining in on the craziness and crowd.
However, we did spend the last 2 days at various beaches for different reasons. We went for our usual long-run at HB yesterday (way too hot and sunny, forcing me to cut my run down by 1.5 miles), and went for a nice brunch at Laguna beach today.
Fortunately for us, but unfortunately for Brussels Bistro, most of the crowd opted for more traditional American fares, thus the empty dining room.
We thought the food was pretty good, and would definitely go back to try other dishes. The mussels were definitely one of the best, and if you like mussels you can have unlimited mussels for $24 Monday through Wednesday nights.
